Not really. You are a minor and expected to do what your parents tell you to. If there is a safety reason for not seeing the parent, you should talk to a social work and get help.

My parents and I have just had a huge argument and they refuse to help me out now that means no food clothes etc and they also refuse to give me my child allowance. What can I do?

If you are a minor, you have one choice: do as your parents wish. That being said, provided there is not physical danger, you truly have only one choice. I suspect there is more to the story than has been shared. It is difficult to believe that any parent would withhold food, clothing, or any necessity from a child. Not that this does not happen, but it is more likely that there has been a gross misunderstanding of what your parents communicated.
